NB21 Namibia & Botswana Desert & Delta is the full tour. Also offered as an accommodated safari, see page 14.
NB15 Namibia & Caprivi, covers the Zambezi Region and Namibia, ending in Windhoek with access to int’l flights.
Overnight: 15 nights on safari we stay at designated campsites, in or bordering national parks and towns. Formal campsites have hot and cold showers, laundry facilities & shops. In Windhoek we stay in pre-erected dome tents beds with shared ablutions. 2 nights “camping wild” without fences in the Okavango. On these nights the crew will erect a bucket shower (with hot water off the fire) and a pit latrine (with seat!). 2 nights in Swakopmund and 1 night in Kasane in a lodge with en suite twin bedrooms.
Meals: 20 breakfasts, 17 lunches & 12 dinners will be provided by the Sunway crew, prepared at the vehicle & eaten around the campfire or in a boma. For certain meals the group will sample local fare at restaurants (own expense).
Transport: We use safari trucks with 12 seats for this tour. Potholes, corrugated gravel roads and livestock on the roads can make travel slow. There are some long drives, so sit back and enjoy the scenery! For the transfers into the Okavango Delta we use open 4WD vehicles with local guides.
Limited participation: An essential part of your safari is participation. From putting up your tent to packing the truck in the morning – it’s all part of your adventure. Your tour leaders will do all the meal preparation, but we do ask for your help (on rotation) with the washing up. There are some long travel days which means early morning starts so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.
